I asked my ex- mechanic (the one that kept my bike for 7 month to repair a few stuff...!) to get a red bulb in the clocks, as it had no light at all, on both sides.
He did do it, but I can hardly see anything with it, of so weak it is. Does anyone knows what king of bulb could be fit in a way that I could read what´s showing in there?
And that was on the left side. As for the the right side (rpm), which is also pitch black, he mumbled something that it was not possible to get some bulb in there...yeah, right...
Could any of you tell me if it´s possible to get a red light on both sides?

Thanks
Ed

I've done it mate




These are now off the bike and I had this fitted a lot better and a real modern look

Wow, I remember seeing those clocks you´ve mounted, the aftermarket ones (can´t remember the name, but the price I do and it´s out of my league for the moment). But the standard ones with the red light look very cool already. I´ll check later the references JDS gave me. Thanks, man

Found them! By old posts from you I found that I need a T3 and a T5 LED neo wedge bulbs.

Ebay is selling them for 1.99€ each. If I´m wrong, please tell me.:stickpoke

Tomorrow morning I´m ordering them. :mouthwate
Took me ages to find an english ebay to sell them, most are american or australian - with the shippping and taxes to Portugal (yeah, we pay a tax on top of everything that comes from overseas...ridiculous:bandit:), it would come out in 50€ or so. :bawling:

Did you realize that the LED in green is nice too ? My bike is red, white and black. So with the green dash it would give it a hint of italian flavour..:smoking: Maybe I go for it. And it´s softer to your eyes when you´re riding. I guess.

Thank you for your support :yo::yo::

Have to keep riding my 1976 50cc vespa for a bit longer...:moped:......and wait ... :popcorn:

Send Woodster a PM as he has done what you are trying to achieve..

Woodster bought his dash bulbs from Ebay and they weren’t expensive.. ( a couple of quid each… )

Here is an example: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2pcs-T3-T4-T5-Neo-Wedge-Spark-Blue-Dash-LED-Bulbs-/191356292942?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2c8db94f4e

In the end, the site you showed me in your post was the one I needed...I just got lost in the ocean of offers, but got back to your suggestion.
Thanks man.
Do you know I´m Silva too? ehe we´re cousins

Hi bud I've not got the bulbs anymore apart from once in the clocks hope u find them mate it's real easy to do just don't loose the little screws lol


No worries, man, already ordered them in ebay by 1.99 each, and, surprise, ordered in green! Sure it´s gonna be awesome!
I´ll be careful with those screws! :jsm:

Ordered at the same time the race water pump at Design Corse, and more Engine Ice.
It´s going to freeze inside that engine aha! :freezing:

Cheers, mate

Ed definitely post a pic of the dash after you're all done would love to see the difference
Hey, guidptorpedo, have a surprise...I ordered in green!
So we´ll see how it looks in the end.

To see the light in red just check out Woodster posts, a couple of days ago, I guess. It´s got the photos of the dashboard in red. Looks veeeery nice!!

Hi there

The bulbs came a couple of weeks ago, but they didn´t fit the original fitting. I can´t remember where I got the tip about the " F3" and "F4" reference, but just didn´t work.

So I going to need the exact reference for these LEDs, cause we´ve seen them mounted on pics here in the forum. Let me do some surch later tonite. From the moment I ordered the bulbs until they came was super fast, maybe 4 or five days (sent to Portugal!).

Let u know soon what´s the reference for those bulbs.
I´m glad they were cheap, like 1.5 euros each...

Ed :yo:
